Apply for a Mid-Term Appointment to a Beaverton Board or Commission
Are you looking to serve your community in a new way in 2022? Look no further! Spots on a handful of Beaverton boards and commissions are open and ready to be applied for mid-term appointments slated to begin in May.
Whether it’s city budgeting (Budget Committee); advocating for bicycle transportation (Bicycle Advisory Committee); advising on issues related to human rights (Human Rights Advisory Commission); supporting our libraries (Library Advisory Board); funding local social services organizations (Social Services Funding Committee); or addressing traffic-related concerns and projects within the city (Traffic Commission), getting involved in local government is a great way to have a say in matters that matter to you. Openings exist on all the above-referenced boards and commissions.
If serving on the Budget Committee or Traffic Commission sounds intimidating, don’t let it be! Technical experience is not required to be a traffic commissioner. Even for the Budget Committee, a finance background is not necessary to be an effective, contributing member; only a passion for serving the community and a desire to learn! We welcome applicants with a fixed income and community focus to help us shape a budget that is reflective of the needs and interests of all who call Beaverton home.
Want to Apply?
Applications for these volunteer opportunities are open until Sunday, Mar. 13. Visit www.BeavertonOregon.gov/GetInvolved to learn more and apply online today!
